Strong Thunderstorms Push Through Central Texas
The National Weather Service has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for Bell County until 12:15 am, and a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for Bell County until 2 am.
At 11:15 a line of storms was moving at 35mph along a line from Evant to Copperas Cove. This storm was producing 60mph wind gusts according to local radars. This could cause some damage to trees, shingles, or even rooftops in locations including Killeen, Copperas Cove, Belton, Fort Hood, Nolanville, Harker Heights, Salado, Little River-Academy, Holland, Evant, Mother Neff State Park, Oglesby and South Mountain.
If you are traveling I-35 late this evening you will want to use extreme caution between mile markers 278 and 298. These storms will likely impact drivers in this area as it passes.
It will take until sometime between 4 am and 7 am Thursday morning for most of this to blow out of Central Texas. We will continue to keep an eye on the storms with our partners at KWTX News 10. Stay safe, CTX!
